Endometrial adenocarcinoma and mucometra (case report)
Reduced appetite, chronic abdominal enlargement and greenish vaginal discharge in a dog that has received depot gestagens over years. A pyometra, of course? Also other differentials need to be considered, as shown in this very interesting case report from Spain.

A 6-year-old female Alaska Malamute dog was presented for evaluation of abdominal enlargement referred by a local veterinarian.

On the history, the owner complained of chronic abdominal enlargement initiated more than 4 months ago, reduced appetite, occasional vomiting and general dullness. He also complained of greenish mucous intermittent vaginal discharge starting 10 days ago.

The bitch was chronically treated with medroxiprogesterone acetate.

A laparatomy was performed and fluid in the abdomen was found and aspirated during the surgery.

Also a very fluid-filled distended uterus and a mass in the distal part of the left uterine horn were found. The mass was encapsulated by the omentum, but areas of necrosis and calcification were identified.

Histopathological diagnosis was endometrial adenocarcinoma.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

Patient-specific facemask to facilitate brain biopsymembers
The objective of this pilot study was to describe the application and first preliminary data of a novel MRI and CT compatible patient-specific facemask for stereotactic brain biopsy of intracranial lesions in dogs. Five client-owned dogs presenting for neurological deficits consistent with forebrain disease were included in the study. All dogs had MRI findings consistent with an intracranial lesion. But biopsies in this region are not easy to obtain. Does an individual face mask help?
